What is AUC?
Albinism Up Close (AUC) is a project that seeks to spread awareness and provide resources about albinism, visual impairment, and blindness.
AUC also provides information on how the blind and visually impaired communities can be successful and diverse.
I recently attended the National Organization of Albinism and Hypopigmentation (NOAH) 18th annual virtual conference and covered it in a series of articles. You can Check them out here in my NOAH Conference page.
Browse the Blog to read about everyday life from the perspective of someone with albinism and legal blindness, tips and tricks, and much more.
